As the title says, What do you hope to accomplish by discussing current events, especially online? Are you seeking a way to express your feelings and validate yourself? Do you believe that discussion on social media will result in solutions to these problems? Do you think that watching mass media and then discussing it amongst your peers is useful? Do you ever think about who owns and funds the news and what their motivations may be to blast certain news stories 24/7? Do you ever question if focusing on your own personal life and community may be ultimately be more productive and fulfilling then discussing what is on the news? Do you ever research social engineering and the structure of the news media and it's role in actively cultivating society and culture as a whole? Do you ever get tired of distracting yourself with outage culture and the endless stream of negative news which has been carefully crafted by algorithms to be sensationalized in order to get you to click and watch and make money as opposed to being informative and factual? What do you hope to accomplish by worrying about things and investing yourself emotionally in issues that realistically you have no personal ability to impact?
